RE: [DMCForum] Re: DeLorean Side Stripe Kits

Actually, I peeled the stripes off my car just yesterday.
It was only about 85 out, and not too hot.
They had been on there over a year or so, and they came right off.
They are very thick and will not tear.
The material they use now a days is better than they used 25 years ago.
There was some slight residue left behind but came right off with some
and a rag.
I needed to take them off because the time machine did not have stripes.
Truth is, you could have just stuck these onto another car and used them if
I had something to stick them too in the meantime, some transfer tape.

The material I am using was actually meant to be used for flooring, and
roofs of vehicles
as I am told, the stuff is tough and meant for the outdoors.
I am willing to bet it will hold up, and hell, if you need to replace them
every 20 years
or so I think they will be worth the money!
